A Pancake Flag Board is such a simple and festive way to start a patriotic holiday!
I’m officially obsessed with the flag boards! They’re so festive and such a beautiful way to serve food on a patriotic holiday. I mean, how cute is this pancake flag board?! It’s made with mini pancakes and fresh fruits for a fun and festive way to kick off the holiday!
Using a rectangle-shaped wood board that’s at least 18″ x 12″ in size, start by filling the top left corner with blackberries and blueberries. Line the rest of the board with raspberries. Next, place mini pancakes in rows across the board, leaving space in between each row for strawberries to create the red stripes.
I like using these mini Eggo pancakes or Trader Joe’s silver dollar pancakes. Earth’s Best mini pancakes are another great option for this quick and easy breakfast. If you have a little more time and would prefer to make the pancakes, these Classic Buttermilk Pancakes are oh so yummy and can be made with a silver dollar pan for the perfect sized pancake for this pancake board.
Don’t worry about the mini pancakes being hot when you serve them as this is more of a snack breakfast and the mini pancakes are actually very tasty at room temperature. Just be sure to defrost them completely or heat them in the microwave if you are using the frozen pancakes.
Next, fill in the spaces between the rows of pancakes with strawberries. And ta-dah, the stripes of your flag are created. So simple yet so beautiful, isn’t it?
Cut mini stars out of slices of bananas with a mini star cutter and place them across the blueberries and blackberries in the top left corner of the board.
To finish, put mini cuts of butter and maple syrup in festive star bowls and add a side of baked bacon. Serve and let everyone ooh and aah over how amazingly patriotic and delicious this breakfast is.
A pancake flag board would make for such a festive family breakfast or brunch with friends on Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day. With pre-made pancakes, it comes together in a matter of minutes which gives you more time to spend celebrating the holiday with your loved ones.
I’ve officially got you covered now for the 4th of July with a flag board for snacks and one for every meal. Whether it be this Pancake Flag board for breakfast, a Hot Dog Flag Board for lunch or an American Flag Cheese Tray for an appetizer, one of these delicious flag board creations is sure to be the hit of your holiday!
